12v power shut off

Recommended Posts

Just going through “basic training” here. How do I shutoff power from the batteries to the 12v system on the legacy elite? The wiring diagram appears to show a 50 amp breaker! Still looking for that,Help! Please!

 

thank you

Sorry but I don't know nuffin about the Elite.  But on the Elite two I would be looking for a black square with a red button in the center of it.  When you push the red button a yellow flag will come out of the right side of the square.  To re-set the breaker all you have to do is push the yellow flag back into the black square.  Hopefully this helps you.

Thanks Bill!

 

I had not invested any brain cells on the 12V system isolation breaker, so I am glad you answered.

 

For the eight month "winter" of my Oliver, to eliminate any power draw from my batteries, I disconnected the battery cables at the batteries.  Sounds like I could save some time by just pushing the red button to kill ALL the 12 volt power in the E2.

 

Do you see any issue with that approach?

On the Elite II, that breaker doesn't shut everything off, so there's still a parasitic drain, though not much.  Better to detach the battery cable or add a real disconnect switch.  Or better still, put a battery tender on it.

If you have an inverter, it is wired up separately with great big cables and a big inline fuse. You would need to disconnect the ground cables at the batteries to kill it.

Both John and Overland are correct and there MIGHT be other things not wired through that (those) breakers (hint: look at your batteries and if there are any wires that are not really big ones - especially if these little wires are of a color other than red or black it is a good sign that something else is running directly off the batteries).  For short term purposes this breaker can help but it is better to not use it as a longer term battery drain solution.  In addition - remember that when "playing around" with things of an electrical nature you should make sure that you are NOT plugged into shore power or a generator and that your solar (if you have it) has been turned off.
